The New Tekla Software Versions Spiral up

The new versions of Tekla Structures, Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Tedds are now available for download, all introducing beneficial improvements and fixes.

Tekla Structures 2017i

The new version includes improvements and fixes for example in drawings, collaboration and modeling complex geometries or reinforcement.

As a practical example of what the new version has to offer is modeling structures like spiral shaped stairs, which can become quick and easy with the new Spiral Beam. Working with steel bent plates is now easier, while Precast Concrete Floor and Wall Layout and the flexible, intelligent Tekla method for modeling and modifying reinforcement have been improved. Creating more complete drawings becomes faster, and DWG export functionality is more efficient.

In addition, there are new tools on top of Trimble’s collaboration platform, Trimble Connect, for model and cloud-based supply chain management between Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect.

Tekla Structural Designer 2017i

The new version of the analysis and design tool for structural engineers allows more productive modeling, includes more design codes and offers improved BIM integration. This is reflected, for example, in improvements that allow spending less time doing manual calculation work outside the software workflow, and data that passes to Tekla Structures and Revit more smoothly.

Tekla Tedds 2017

The new improvements in the software for automating repetitive structural calculations boost your productivity. For example, Batch design for any Tekla Tedds calculation is now possible, and what is more, there is a wealth of new and improved calculations.
